X Games and ESPY winner Nyjah Huston didn't wait until the new year to start doing good deeds. On Christmas Eve, the professional skateboarder toured select Southern California skate parks to meet fans and hand-deliver some of his signature Element skateboards.

Huston's journey - documented on Instagram with photos such as the one included here - specifically focused on skate parks in lower-income areas of the region. You can see more pictures from his trip by checking out his Instagram account (nyjah_huston).

The 19-year-old Davis, California native had a very successful 2013, taking first place in events at both X Games Barcelona and X Games Los Angeles. You can see his final run from X Games Los Angeles by using the video player embedded with this article.

Huston was also named Best Male Action Sports Athlete at the 2013 ESPY Awards in July, and appeared in the skateboarding documentary The Motivation, which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival.
